Beauty in the details

Hello Everyone, I'm really enjoying Scrivener 2.0 now that I've had some time with it. I just wanted to point out one lovely little touch I don't remember seeing in 1.0 -- maybe it was there and I just missed it. When you are typing, quickly glance at the Scrivener icon at the top of the tool bar. I...

How to change the font in Document Notes

Hi there, I would like to know how to change the font in the Document Notes Pane in the Inspector. I'd like to be able to have a different font character and size to the main text. I did scan through the manual but Scrivener 2.0 is a very comprehensive program and I've only been using it less than a...

Font changes unexpectedly

Hi everyone, After only two days with the trial copy, I bought 2.0. Fantastic upgrade. One thing I've noticed is that when I'm typing, often the font will change unexpectedly from my chosen font (Palatino) to (Lucidia Grande). I assume I'm inadvertently hitting some combination of keys that's result...

Changing Defaut Text on a project

Hi again,

I'm loving the new Scrivener but its an up-hill task to get some things changed. :D
I want to change the default text on an existing project. Did the procedure change in 2.0?

Font Override in Compile to PDF

Hi there,

I'm loving the new Scrivener but it's taking a little time to get up to speed with all the new stuff.
In Compile, I'd like to be able to create a PDF but override the font I've been using with something else. I can't see how that is done.
Could anyone advise me?

Kind Regards

Re: Working off of network drives (MobileMe; DropBox...)

I just save a backup file to the hard drive. I then copy it onto Interarchy (a Mac FTP app). It then gets simultaneously uploaded to MobileMe iDisk and Amazon S3. That way, I have a local copy and two remote copies. Better safe than sorry.

Re: Creating PDF files using Draft

It looks as if Scrivener is masking the text area when it creates the PDF. The top of the "f" extends outside the character bounding box (many do) and consequently gets cut off by the mask when it's at the edge of the text area.

Re: Creating PDF files using Draft

In instances where the character 'f' is the last character on the line of justified text, it looks clipped. The same thing happens with italic 't'.

I'm using Adobe Garamond Pro, 12pt, if that helps at all.

Creating PDF files using Draft

Hi everyone, I use the draft feature to output pdf files and everything works really well. However, it seems that there is a slight problem with the ends of characters being effectively clipped. It's most noticeable on lines where the last character is 'f'. Does anyone know where I might look to get...
